Home Remedies To Treat Nose Bleeding:

Cold Water

Pouring cold water on the head is one of the first remedies that one should try when the nose starts to bleed. This is because nose bleeding happens due to excess of heat and pouring cold water on the head gives the required coolness. Also during this time, one should only breathe through the mouth instead of the nose, and heavy breathing through the nose may further rupture the nerve. Also, keep the head tilted forward to stop the bleeding.

Onion has anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic, anti-oxidant and anti-carcinogenic properties, and are a rich source of Vitamin A, B6, B-complex and C. When it comes to nose bleeding, onion also helps in controlling nose bleeding. For this, one has to cut a piece of onion and keep it close to the nose. Sniffing onion lightly can help reduce and stop the bleeding for its many properties.


Ice Cloth Wrap

A cold compress is the best remedy to stop the nose from bleeding. This is because nose bleeding happens mainly because of excessive heat, and this can be controlled by doing a cold compress on the head as well as on the nose area. For this, one should take a few ice cubes, wrap it in a cloth and sit up straight with the head tilted back. The pack should be applied on the nasal bridge and the head for 5-10 minutes with breaks in between. This process should be repeated until the nose stops to bleed.
